The Wayne Memorial Health Foundation sponsors many events during the year. Two of these events are annual occurrences:
THE HARRY KIESENDAHL GOLF TOURNAMENT
The Harry Kiesendahl Golf Tournament for Wayne Memorial Health Foundation is held each year in August at Woodloch Springs and Country Club in Hawley, Pennsylvania. Wayne Memorial Health Foundation first sponsored a golf tournament to raise funds in 1988. During the first six years of the tournament's existence, it was conducted at several different golf resorts throughout the area until 1994 when Woodloch Springs and Country Club became the venue. In 2007, upon the tournament's 20th anniversary, it was renamed the Harry Kiesendahl Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of one of the founders of Woodloch Pines, and later Woodloch Springs and Country Club. Harry Kiesendahl served on the Wayne Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees from 1981 until 1987, the Community Health Concern Board from 1979 until 1994 and as Chairman of Wayne Health Services Board of Directors from its founding in 1985 until Mr. Kiesendahl's death in 2006. Mr. Kiesendahl's son, Steven, Director of Sales and Marketing for Woodloch Pines, Inc., now serves as a Director on the Wayne Health Services Board. His other son, John, who is President and Chief Executive Officer of Woodloch, served as a Co-Chairman during campaign Operation Vital Signs from January 2005 until January 2008. The Kiesendahls and the Woodloch Family are now starting their fourth decade of support of the Wayne Memorial Hospital and Community.
THE HARRY PROPST, M.D. SPORTING CLAYS INVITATIONAL
The Harry Propst, M.D. Sporting Clays Invitational was first held at Catskill Pheasantry in Long Eddy, New York in September of 2008. The initial Sporting Clays Shoot, attracting 50 shooters was well received and the September 2009 edition attracted 120 shooters and more than 50 volunteers to assist witht the event that raised over $15,000. The event honors Wayne Memorial's long time friend and chief of staff, Harry Propst. Dr. Propst devoted his life to the practice of medicine and the opportunity to serve all, who required his surgical skills, without regard to their station in life. Dr. Propst understood the role of the Hospital in the overall health of a rural community, as the place to go for injury and illness, as well as, as an employer and collaborator with local government and education. Therefore, he volunteered his time and wisdom as Chief of the Medical Staff and a member of the Board of the Board of Trustees of Wayne Memorial Hospital for more than 43 years, from his inital appointment in 1957 until his dealth in 2001.
